BACK TO NATURE
“A tired dog is a good dog” says any dog person and “The more I learn about humans, the more I like my dog.” Mark Twain. This is why we spend our lives making sure that our dogs are healthy and strong. A fit body is more apt to fight disease and less likely to sustain common injuries associated with either, play, work or aging. At Sexy Bitch we make good dogs better. From hard working military and police canines to older or obese dogs to the Sexy Bitch going for her next show ribbon.
By providing individualized exercise plans we can help your K-9 prepare for their job or your plus sized pooch cut weight. We can cater to your dogs breed, age, weight, and or fitness level. Starting with lite walks we will assess your dog’s fitness levels and needs. We also require a veterinarian’s assessment to start the journey. From there we can offer a plan to address you pets’ needs such as conditioning, weight loss, weight management, or job readiness and performance. We specialize in a variety of works out from low impact to high intensity workouts for advanced candidates. Our facilities range from individual laps pools to full fledge breed specific course, such as earth dog or motorized lure coursing fields. We focus on not only what you want your dog to do but what they were bred to do.
Low impact aerobics and anaerobic workout plans for plus size or well-aged pets start with self-paced indoor electric walks and swimming. Each exercise session increasing as the animal gets stronger and more adjusted. Each also ends with a thorough rub down. As the workouts progress we offer such exercises as weight pulls, cart drafting, and sled pulls. Many of our routines can be done inside as to avoid the heat for pets that are susceptible to heat exhaustion or over-heating.
Individualized feeding plans help to create a healthy dog from the inside out. Remembering that all canines are descendants of the wolf we strive to feed them as such by feeding high quality Biologically Appropriate Raw Food (BARF) diets. All physical health starts from within and being that this is a natural true we think that feeding is as, if not more important than exercise itself. Many of the issues our pets have today are side effects of poor feeding thus many of the problems can be fixed simply by changing what we feed out animals. Take for instance allergies. Many of the allergies that pet owners deal with are from corn and or by-products in the food they feed.
Most people don’t have the time or knowledge to prepare nutritious balanced meals for their pets. Our facility has an on-site kitchen were we can prepare individualized meal specific to your dog’s needs or ailments. These meals can be ordered on site to be prepared while you wait or prepared for a day, week, or month. This approach allows even the pickiest of eaters to be catered to. This way of feeding usually helps get rid of the doggy smell, inching, many digestive issues, and adds a healthy sheen to the coat. It will increase energy and may add years to your dog’s life. As with humans obesity and lethargy can shorten your life, rob you of energy, and kill. “This increasingly common condition decreases a dog's life span, increases its risk for various cancers, and causes orthopedic problems—just to name a few of the possible sequelae.” --Dr. Karen Becker
A tired dog is a good dog. Just like as in humans we see that regular physical exercise helps to relief stress and anxiety, thus reducing issues with chewing, barking, and other issues that people have with their pets and their “bad” behavior. If we look at the beginning of the relationship between man and dog we see that dogs have always had a job. We bred dogs to have different traits and qualities to perform at certain jobs more proficiently.
Unfortunately, many of the jobs that the dogs were bred for no longer exist but the dogs still have and inherited need to do a certain thing. Here at Back to Natural we formulate routines to and challenges to get dogs healthy both physically and mentally by letting them do what it is that they are happy doing. This getting back to nature for a dog is essential to a balanced animal. We cannot expect a herding bred to not herd any more than we cannot expect a hunting dog not to hunt. Once your dog is active doing the thing that he is meant to do, your dog will become more balanced. This can be achieved through routine and training. This routine and exercise will help your dog with anxiety, stress, and pent up energy. For our aged companions exercise is important but less strenuous activity. As we see with humans, exercise and diet keep the body and mind strong, making it easier to enjoy life into our later years. We are less likely to experience atrophy, joint pains, and disease. Pets that are more active keep their youthful spark much later in life and may not need as much veterinarian care for preventable aliments. Diet and exercise alone will not guaranty a longer life but they do make the life lived better. Through offering breed, age, and health oriented exercises and diets we here at Back to Nature are striving to help our dogs live long healthy and happy lives, mind, body, and soul.

Dogs

...Rough Draft Dogs are better equipped in the household families of today, Basenji’s and Rat Terriers are the two best pets that one can own. Most people have a hard time choosing what they think is the best pet for them. Most people want an animal that has some energy but not too much! They also want a dog that can be gentle with them and their children, but can also be protective and a guard dog when the time calls for it. Some people think that size matters when you want these qualities in a pet, but they really don’t! People of today have just been deceived into thinking that way. Basenjis and Rat Terriers carry these qualities without being too big to be uncomfortable or to small that they can’t do their jobs. Basenjis and Rat Terriers are both protective of their owners and are very loyal to them. Families want to have security with their dogs; they don’t want them to be TOO friendly to just anyone but they don’t want them to be too aggressive either. Both animals are very cautious about strangers and though they might not necessarily bite them they will make sure that they are noticed by the intruders. They will make sure that they are in between the strangers and their owners in case they need their assistance. Basenjis and Rat Terriers are very watchful and if they see or hear anything they automatically alert their owners that something is not right. Even if it is something big like seeing someone outside or something small, like seeing another animal. Both......

...delicacy among rabbits, and as a rule there are very few left by late May in the neighborhood of even a small warren. This one had not bloomed and its flat spread of leaves was almost hidden under the long grass. They were just starting on it when two larger rabbits came running across from the other side of the nearby cattle wade. "Cowslip?" said one. "All right -- just leave it to us. Come on, hurry up," he added, as Fiver hesitated. "You heard me, didn't you?" "Fiver found it, Toadflax," said Hazel. "And we'll eat it," replied Toadflax. "Cowslips are for Owsla* -- don't you know that? If you don't, we can easily teach you." Fiver had already turned away. Hazel caught him up by the culvert. "I'm sick and tired of it," he said. "It's the same all the time. 'These are my claws, so this is my cowslip.' 'These are my teeth, so this is my burrow.' I'll tell you, if ever I get into the Owsla, I'll treat outskirters with a bit of decency." "Well, you can at least expect to be in the Owsla one day," answered Fiver. "You've got some weight coming and that's more than I shall ever have." "You don't suppose I'll leave you to look after yourself, do you?" said Hazel. "But to tell you the truth, I sometimes feel like clearing out of this warren altogether. Still, let's forget it now and try to enjoy the evening. I tell you what -- shall we go across the brook? There'll be fewer rabbits and we can have a bit of peace. Unless you feel it isn't......

The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn And she took snuff, too; of course that was all right, because she done it herself. Her sister, Miss Watson, a tolerable slim old maid, with goggles on, had just come to live with her, and took a set at me now with a spelling-book. She worked me middling hard for about an hour, and then the widow made her ease up. I couldn’t stood it much longer. Then for an hour it was deadly dull, and I was fidgety. Miss Watson would say, ‘Don’t put your feet up there, Huckleberry;’ and ‘Don’t scrunch up like that, Huckleberry — set up straight;’ and pretty soon she would say, ‘Don’t gap and stretch like that, Huckleberry — why don’t you try to be- have?’ Then she told me all about the bad place, and I said I wished I was there. She got mad then, but I didn’t mean no harm. All I wanted was to go somewheres; all I wanted was a change, I warn’t particular. She said it was wicked to say what I said; said she wouldn’t say it for the whole world; she was going to live so as to go to the good place. Well, I couldn’t see no advantage in going where she was going, so I made up my mind I wouldn’t try for it. But I never said so, because it would only make trouble, and wouldn’t do no good. Now she had got a start, and she went on and told me all about the good place. She said all a body would have to do there was to go around all day long......

...average mother, but if I put my mind to it I could improve. My daughter believes  in Pass/Fail and tells me I pass. Wait 'til they learn I'm dropping out.  Meditation By The Stove I have banked the fires of my body into a small but steady blaze here in the kitchen where the dough has a life of its own, breathing under its damp cloth like a sleeping child; where the real child plays under the table, pretending the tablecloth is a tent, practicing departures; where a dim brown bird dazzled by light has flown into the windowpane and lies stunned on the pavement-- it was never simple, even for birds, this business of nests. The innocent eye sees nothing, Auden says, repeating what the snake told Eve, what Eve told Adam, tired of gardens, wanting the fully lived life. But passion happens like an accident I could let the dough spill over the rim of the bowl, neglecting to punch it down, neglecting the child who waits under the table, the mild tears already smudging her eyes. We grow in such haphazard ways. Today I feel wiser than the bird. I know the window shuts me in, that when I open it the garden smells will make me restless. And I have banked the fires of my body into a small domestic flame for others to warm their hands on for a while.  Pears Some say it was a pear Eve ate. Why else the shape of the womb, or of the cello Whose single song is grief for the parent tree? Why else the fruit itself tawny and sweet which your......

Serial Killer Richard Kuklinski

...involved in the child’s life, and there main focus was the best interest of the child. Richards’s parents were involved in his upbringing but in a way that caused him to lose a part of humanism which will cause harm to so many people. Because of the abuse his father bestowed upon him, and to his siblings this had an unfavorable outcome on Richard. Another thing that I believed that caused Richard to not have any emotions for life was he watch his father beat his older brother to death and made his mother lie to the police on what happened to his brother. Here are some of the things that took place in Richards’s life that are questionable to whether this cause him to become what he became or was it just an excuse for him to lean on. I will dig into some of his life and then do my comparison at the end of my brief summary of Mr. Kuklinski life history. Richard Kuklinski was a devoted husband and a father of three beautiful children living in a middle class neighborhood in Jersey City New Jersey. Mr. Kuklinski committed over 200 murders in a decade’s time which to this day was noted as the most murders committed by any one person in the history of the United States known to man. Richard was a unique person because he was able to live two lives while not only throwing off his family of what he did for a living but also his neighbors. His wife of over forty years never questioned her husband of where he was going when he left the house all hours of the night. All she knew his job......

...whatever happens in this life, it's not legendary unless your friends are there to see it. "The Dream" You wake up in the morning and start your day with a 24 hour dump. Dump Day. While that's certainly a long time, you now no longer have to poop for an entire year. Because there's no fear of dumping, your tauntaun butler helps dress you in a suit made of prosciutto so you can eat your way naked. On a full stomach, you travel via jet engine roller skates to a stadium where you enjoy a pack of lions fighting a Tyrannosaurus. Luckily, you're enjoying this with some chick you just met; who as it turns out is rocking an amazing set of back boobs. After the tyrannosaurus and lions battle to a draw, you ditch Back Boobs and head outside to see a dog driving a motorcycle. How'd he get on there? How does he keep his tail out of the exhaust? Why did the human agree to sit in the sidecar? Nobody knows, but it's awesome. When you get home, you open your globe bar where the earth has been replaced by a geographic representation of the Barnerian Empire and pour yourself a scotch using ice cubes made out of scotch, so when they melt, you just get more scotch. You settle in with your scotch on the scotch and turn on the TV to a channel that exclusively features elderly people trying to run through thunderstorms. After getting your fill of laughter for the year, you eat your cell phone made out of pretzels and chocolate for a snack, and then switch on some Olympic coverage, which now......

News Writing

...yourself 34 NEWSWRITING BASICS NEWSWRITING BASICS 35 Just the facts When you write a story, you must try to be objective. Truthful. Fair. You can’t just pull material from your memory, or quote your friends, or make pronouncements about the way things ought to be. You must be factual — which means basing your stories on the best facts you can find. Good reporters respect the integrity of facts. When you select them carefully and arrange them skillfully, you can communicate without inserting your own opinions. For instance, Facts are simple and facts are straight this fact by itself seems trivial: Percentage Facts are lazy and facts are late of Americans who can name two freedoms Facts all come with points of view granted by the First Amendment: 28. Facts don't do what I want them to. But now add this fact: Percentage of Talking Heads, “Crosseyed and Painless” Americans who can name two members of “The Simpsons” cartoon family: 52. Together, those two facts lead to a logical, unspoken conclusion — that Americans pay more attention to TV characters than to government. True? Arguably. But it’s a good example of how journalism should work: The facts tell the story, and readers draw their own conclusions. SO WHERE DO OPINIONS BELONG IN JOURNALISM? “Credibility — more than news itself — is our stock in trade. An informative story is important. A dramatic story is desirable. An honest story is imperative.” David Shaw, Los Angeles Times media......

...despair.O.Henry vividly pictures the given New York culture …the police ,the church, the welfare agencies and the labour unions tend rather to thrust the innocent (for whose love and protection society creates them),into the maw of predatory individuals(Elsie in New York).thus poor Elsie, a little peacherino who might have had a number of safely respectable jobs, but for her protectors ,winds up as a model whose fate (O.Henry assures us by quoting Dickens) is to be numbered among the “lost your Excellency”. While Elsie admires herself in Russian sables in the mirror, her employer, Otter is gleefully reserving a private dining room for two, with “the usual band and the 85 Johannisburger with roast.”……and O.Henry concludes painfully with a dig at the individuals and the society: Lost, Associations, and Societies, Lost, Right Reverends and wrong Reverends’ of every order, lost Reformers and law makers, born With heavenly compassion in your Hearts, but with a reverence of Money in your souls.
